    WA96 Drink 2012-2050 Like many of its peers, the 1998 has filled out spectacularly. Now in the bottle, this opaque black/purple-colored offering has increased in stature, richness, and size. A blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, and 2% Cabernet Franc (57% of the production was utilized), it is an extremely powerful, super-concentrated wine offering notes of roasted espresso, creme de cassis, smoke, new saddle leather, graphite, and licorice. It is massive, with awesome concentration, mouth-searing tannin levels, and a saturated flavor profile that grips the mouth with considerable intensity. This is a 50-year Mouton, but patience will be required as it will not be close to drinkability for at least a decade. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2050.

    두번째 마시는 무똥75 벽갈색 아직 살아있는 탄닌감 버섯향 흑연 올빈특유의 흙내음이 잘 아우러진 적절한 구조감 양이 적어서 시간에 따른 변화를 보지 못함 특별한 감동은 없는 빈티지임
